Mamamia launches first comedy podcast ‘Cancelled’ to take a sideways look at celebrity cancel culture
PRESS RELEASE · Sydney NSW, Australia ·
Celebrity cancel culture is the subject of a brand new comedy show, dropping today from leading Australian podcaster, Mamamia.
Co-hosted by Jessie and Clare Stephens, Mamamia’s Assistant Head Of Content and Editor In Chief, respectively, Cancelled brings the duo’s trademark wit and eye for the absurd in entertainment to a corner of pop culture that seems to be spinning out of control.
Promotion has been building, with “Cancelled: Who’s in, who’s out & who cares…” including a social video which imagines what it would be like if people spoke to each other face to face like they speak to strangers online.
Cancelled’s launch partner is local streaming powerhouse, Stan.
Clare Stephens said: “Right now, people need escapism, and they need a laugh. Cancelled is a comedy podcast which takes the internet’s constant outrage as seriously as it deserves to be treated… which isn’t very. Comedy is a growing genre in podcasting which is, as it stands, very male-dominated. Mamamia has heroed women’s voices for more than 14 years, and Cancelled is an approach to pop culture that’s fresh and funny.”
Jessie Stephens said:”This is a podcast we’ve desperately wanted to make in response to a culture that calls ‘out’ rather than calls ‘in’. We want to examine the absurdity of cancel culture by telling the stories of celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Ellen DeGeneres, Lance Armstrong and Chrissy Teigen, with a raised eyebrow. We’re so excited to launch this project that’s unlike anything we’ve done before.”
Cancelled drops every Tuesday. Listen at mamamia.com.au/podcasts/cancelled-podcast/, or in the Mamamia app, or wherever you get your podcasts.
Mamamia is Australia’s #1 women’s media brand across articles, podcasts, videos, social media, influencers, eDMs, member panels, LIVE events and online courses. Mamamia’s founding purpose is to make the world a better place for women and girls.
